You see this here makes me think it's 300 + 300 like I was told in the beginning.
I think I'm going to edit my sales calls from the MTN reps and post them here for you guys to pick apart!! It's a s hitfess... I sometimes wonder what the MTN marketing gurus are smoking?! They've made things so contrived and obfuscated that their own reps have only a very basic idea of what they actually selling...

Just got another email with different offers.


I think they're going to keep releasing new offers. Probably why some of the consultants haven't heard about some of the deals posted here...
Thinking of getting this for family but I’m concerned about the limitations as marked... Anybody know if the limitations apply?

I received the same sms on both sims (and two separate emails from billie Jean)
It does still puzzle me that that the tone of this message remains that it is ”kind-of” my fault and I ”must” upgrade to avoid “unexpected costs”. I was told (in the email) that the credit will happen on Monday - I will post it to my original message I the other thread

I am still looking through all the different deal options presented on these pages before I make up my mind.

The promotional portion will not. I think the non promotional portion is 100gb a month. You chow through the non promotional portion first by default...

My Bf contracts always use the promo data first on the main sim.

Slightly off-topic, is anyone using their YelloBucks Reward points? I managed to save up 2 years worth of points and redeemed it on Incredible Connection and fast food vouchers - total value of R1600. Quite nice actually. Thanks MTN.

I didn't realise Yellobucks was so lucrative, I only recently activated it on my R299 contract.

To get that R1600 after 2yrs what is the monthly contract amount you paid each month?

R1600 is a nice bonus.

Yeah, I got a bit mixed up. Data share uses non promotional data, promotional data cannot be used for data share, non promotional data carries over for 2 months, promotional data not used is forfeited at 30 days. You use promotional data first, by default...

This is how I see it. My account was activated today, so that means there are 22 days until the 11th Dec. I was allocated 293.3GB recuring data and 73.6GB promotional data for a total of 367GB Anytime data. The same 367GB is available for Night data.

500GB/30 = 16.6667GB
16.66667GB x 22days = 367GB .

367GB is the exact prorata'd amount I expected to get. You can check with your allocation as well. If you activated today, you will be on the same amount as myself, else if you activated yesterday, you will have received around 384GB.

I emailed customer care and got this response:

"Please note the Anytime Data bundle have no restriction, they connect to any internet service at anytime of the day. The Video Streaming you are referring to below, is when you are on a package that gives you Video Streaming Data bundles, that those data bundles will only connect and work on Showmax and DStv Now."

Yeah, non promotional data rolls over. Well, again the question we need to ask is which R499 data deal are the various sales reps punting cause Morris punted one to me and he was quite specific. 600gb total, 500gb anytime of which 100gb is shareable, therefore that implies the balance, 400gb is promotional. There is 100gb of night express data too.... to make up 600gb... so flipping confusing actually!! Just the way MTN like it!! I asked him for the offers in writing. He sent me screenshots instead....

Hmmm this is confusing, from that screenshot I understand that the package is a "MyChoice 400GB" so 400GB is normal data and should be shareable.

100GB is the promotional data and is not shareable.

Expecting a call from Mpho today so I'll ask him to clarify.

Exactly!! In which case the information I got from Morris is incorrect... as I said, these guys are having a hard time understanding how their packages are put together....


Here's a link to the sales call... edited....

Will an MTN store be able to do anything with the upgrade codes to make this process easier ?

The night time data... Is it night owl, night express, night surfer? I'm pretty sure MTN has used all 3 in the past to describe the night time allocations...
